Roberto Carlos is very lauded about the Eredivisie. The former left-back thinks the competition is ideal for Brazilian players. He therefore thinks that the Dutch clubs should attract more Brazilians. Carlos also admires Guus Hiddink.
“The Dutch competition has not become a weak competition at all,” explains Carlos in conversation with Algemeen Dagblad. “With clubs like PSV, Ajax and Feyenoord you still have clubs that are very interesting for young Brazilian players. I also think you clubs should make a policy out of that. Brazilian players are often cheap, young and they quickly have a decent level.”
The now 47-year-old Brazilian follows the Eredivisie reasonably. Guus Hiddink plays a role in that. Carlos worked several times with the current coach of Curaçao, whom he still admires. “I find it so interesting to see how someone with so much experience still loves the game,” says the former left-back. “Age doesn‘t matter if you’re in it like that. Guus Hiddink is a professional and I consider him a true friend. A great champion, too.”
